Buenas noches presídium que nos acompaña, familiares y amigos

Representa un verdadero honor para mí tomar la palabra en nombre de todos mis compañeros graduados.

Esta es una tarde que marca el fin de una importante etapa de nuestras vidas. Tenemos sentimientos encontrados, una alegría enorme por haber conseguido una meta personal pero a la vez mucha expectativa de lo que ocurrirá de ahora en adelante. Atrás quedan muchos recuerdos, recuerdos que nos acompañarán por el resto de nuestras vidas. Al pensar en ellos podemos notar cuánto hemos cambiado en estos años y cuánto hemos aprendido, de cómo todo lo vivido aquí en esta escuela ha contribuido a hacernos no sólo buenos estudiantes sino también mejores personas. Algunos han encontrado entre los pasillos el amor, otros se han ganado el respeto de sus compañeros, pero definitivamente todos y cada uno de nosotros hemos dejado huella, no solo en la facultad, sino también en los demás.

Hoy nos despedimos para iniciar una nueva etapa; la experiencia vivida en estos años nos llena de entusiasmo para seguir fuera, ya que aquí comprendimos el verdadero significado de la amistad, la unión, la vocación de enseñar y las ganas de superarnos y siempre buscar ser los mejores.

No puedo finalizar este discurso sin agradecer a algunos de manera especial. Agradecer a todos los que han contribuido y han estado a nuestro lado apoyándonos en esta etapa de aprendizaje. Esta graduación es el resultado del esfuerzo de cada uno, pero también de todas las personas que estuvieron a nuestro lado durante el transcurso de la carrera. Ccada uno de ellos se encargo de sembrar en nosotros conocimientos y valores que permanecerán siempre.

En primer lugar a Dios por darnos la vida y permitirnos llegar con salud a este día.

A nuestras padres y familias, por impulsarnos, darnos su apoyo a pesar de las dificultades por creer en…...

Graduation by Maya Angelou

...Graduation by Maya Angelou Summary In Maya Angelou’s essay Graduation, the author describes all of the emotions & experiences she has approaching, & during her middle school graduation in the 1930s at the segregated school Lafayette County Training School in Stamps, Arkansas. Pre-Graduation Students prepare to graduate from both the grammar & high schools in Stamps, Arkansas. While some families order new outfits for themselves & their children, Angelou wears a yellow pique dress like the majority of other eighth grade girls. Angelou feels a sense of excitement & anticipation, which lifts her spirits, as she says, “I had taken to smiling more often, & my jaws hurt from the unaccustomed activity.” Graduation Day The students file into their seats, singing the National Anthem & reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. However, straying from the usual assembly routine, they do not follow with the “Negro National Anthem,” the song “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” by James Weldon Johnson & J. Rosamond Johnson. This exemption gives Angelou an idea of how the rest of the ceremony will go. The principal welcomes & leads the group in a prayer with the Baptist priest, & introduces the guest speaker, white state representative Edward Donleavy. He gives a very uninspiring speech as he tells of the improvements set for the white high school’s sciences, arts & Training School’s sports facilities. Other than sports, Donleavy spoke very little......

Graduation Speech

...Standing before you on this day reminds me of my 8th grade graduation. I sat on the stage listening to three of my peers give beautiful speeches that had nothing to do with any of the feelings I felt. The speakers harped on the nostalgia of leaving a school they had been at for nine years; I had only been there for three. They spoke on how they would miss seeing the same faces everyday and that they feared the days ahead – however, I was excited. When I thought about the future I saw all the things waiting for me to come and try. I saw the new friends I would make, the papers I would write, the softball games I would win, the clubs and activities I would join, the boy who would be my first kiss, and the wonderful people I would meet who would inspire me more than I realized at the time. Graduation is a time to look at what the future has in store for each of us. It is a time to take a look at what path our lives are going to take once the caps and gowns are taken off and we are thrust into an unknown future. Changes next year will vary greatly for each of us, they will come in the form of new environments, lifestyles, and schedules. And these changes will bring an abundance of questions. Will I be happy? Will I fall in love? Will I have a family? Will I be happy five or ten years down the road? Will I make a difference? Will I make a difference in my community? In my country? In the world? El Cerrito High School graduates of 2010,......

I would like start my speech with the immortal words of the author Frederick Douglass noted that "if there is no struggle, there is no progress," Today, as we prepare to move toward the future, it is pertinent that we hold fast to our support networks—those who have encouraged and grounded us throughout the years. Parents, families, friends, and mentors, I take this moment to thank you! We ask that you continue to support us as we embark on our future endeavors.

And let me tell you why: First, as capable thinkers, we are great problem-solvers. When faced with a challenge, we will use both our skepticism and our knowledge to dig into the roots of the issue and tackle the problem from the center outward. Second, the teachers are very capable and sincere in their work , they love to help their students to acknowledge all the information necessary to excel in the future . the Syllabus given there is highly organized and it is taught in a marvelous and flawless timeline .

Graduation Speech

...Good afternoon fellow classmates, parents, friends, family, and community members. Now I’m sure you all know why we are here today. Yep that right, it’s that time…class of 2015, it’s our time, it’s our time to finally sit in these chairs, to wear these caps and gowns, to be handed a diploma, and to say our goodbyes. Now as I was sitting down trying to figure out how I was going to write this speech, the only thing that came to my mind was playing basketball. Now why would I be thinking about basketball at this time? I mean come on were about to graduate and here I am thinking about a game! But then it hit me, high school in some ways is a lot like a basketball game. Both are hard, challenging, difficult, and by the end, you’re relieved that its over. Now just imagine, you are warming up for the game, you have all those nervous butterflies dancing around in your stomach, you are scared that you might mess up and get pulled out of the game. Now imagine being in the middle of the court, waiting for the ref to throw the opening tip, your Adrenaline is at its highest, you see the ref throw up the ball, the players tip it, and all of the sudden your off running to one side of the court, the easiest yet the most terrifying part of the game. If you think about it, this is a lot like our freshmen year. You have no idea what is in store for you but you know that you just have to play and get that first year done with. Now back to the game, you have just finished that first quarter and...

In 2004, Sionil José received the Pablo Neruda Centennial Award. GRADUATION  by F. Sionil Jose I always knew that someday after I finished high school, I’d go to Manila and to college. I had looked ahead to thegrand adventure with eagerness but when it finally came, my leaving Rosales filled me with a nameless dread and a great,swelling unhappiness that clogged my chest. I couldn’t be sure now. Maybe it was friendship, huge and granite-like, or just plain sympathy. I couldn’t be sureanymore; maybe I really fell in love when I was sixteen. Her name was Teresita. She was a proud, stubborn girl with many fixed ideas and she even admonished me: “Justbecause you gave will be accepted.” It was until after sometime that I understootd what she meant and when she did, I honored her all the more. Shewas......

...Jewel James English 12 January 12, 2016 Final Project Graduation has been a teenagers’ dream to achieve throughout their academic life in School. However, many obstacles tend to prevent these teenagers from graduating. Why? Well This is because of the unequal fairness that teachers provide to the students. Therefore, I think That graduation from high schools should depend on students’ marks based on standardized Exams. I would explain the reasons through the analysis of students’ life of bias treatment from Teachers, and the different standards of teachers based on their degree of knowledge. We can all acknowledge that all teachers are humans; all humans contain feelings inside them whether it is positive or negative. But yet, these feelings tend to disrupt the equality of the teachers. Knowing this, we could see that teachers can be bias at times depending on the circumstances. Sexism and racism are usually the main issue between teachers and students. Some teachers tend to like their own sex or their opposite sex based on their own belief and needs. They may think that their own sex is a lot better than the other or that the opposite sex is a lot more attracting than your own sex. These factors affect a teacher’s ability to distinguish between their own feelings or to judge the ability of a student rather than their sex. Racism is also another main issue between teachers and students. Some teacher may tend to have a strong belief in a type of......

Oprah Winfrey's Speech at Stanford Graduation 2008

...Speech Analysis Paper Oprah Winfrey Stanford University Graduation 2008 This speech was about three lessons that Oprah Winfrey has come across in her professional and personal life. She talked about striving to be yourself and not anyone else and how you can grasp failure and turn it around by embracing it and finding the solution, and lastly how happiness comes when you give back to others. Her first lesson was about striving to be your own self; she talked about in the beginning of her professional career when she had a job in Baltimore as a news anchor. She was constantly holding Barbara Walters as the image she wanted to be in her career and wanted to be like. So she was always trying to talk like Barbara, look like Barbara and act like Barbara… And she kept getting it wrong. She felt the need to be spontaneous and more of herself when she would read some of the headings…. Especially upsetting headings with disasters involved. So she would sometimes not pre-read any of headings until she was live so it would come across more realistic. She once covered a story of a horrible fire and afterwards ran to the scene and helped the fire victims by providing blankets. She never lost her empathy. She ran into some barriers during this job that ultimately helped her find her true purpose in life. The first barrier was that her boss let her know that they did not like the way she looked, and that they wanted to give her a new name that they thought would be more “friendly”......

Graduation Sheep

...Isaiah Paolo Atienza Lee’s Graduation Speech I thought that the commencement speech I recently gave before the University of the Philippines’ College of Science graduates (excerpted here last week) was pretty good, but it was the student response given by Isaiah Paolo Lee (BS Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, summa cum laude) — known to his friends and teachers as “Pao” — that blew my socks off. (Pao acknowledges that his sister Jillian helped him along with the speech — hurray for sisters!) I later emailed Pao to say that it was the best student speech I’d ever heard, and asked him for a copy to share with my readers, so here it is, and I hope this goes viral: My name is Isaiah Paolo Atienza Lee, and I am not your valedictorian. I am not the best, I am not the brightest, and I am here speaking to you right now because all the other summas backed out. I’m somehow supposed to talk to you about honor and excellence, so let me start with my story. When I was in first year, I almost got kicked out because of Chem 16. I wasn’t even bad at the class. I just had a habit of scribbling on my forearm during exams, which was—in hindsight, understandably — interpreted as cheating. After an unchecked exam and a lot of stress, I ended up with a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome. On the whole, it was a less than ideal way to get psychological support and an 1.00 in Chem 16, but I didn’t fail the class, I didn’t get dismissed from UP, and I didn’t jump off a bridge. I could have,......

Graduation Speech

...JON BON JOVI MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY Commencement Address May 16, 2001   Good afternoon… and congratulations to the graduating class of 2001.  President Stafford, faculty, alumni, parents, family and friends.  I’m humbled and honored to have been asked to give this commencement speech on this, one of the most special days of your life (so far.)   I’ve had to think hard over the last several weeks about what information I could offer you that you might find useful in the years to come. Though the book of my life isn’t yet finished at 39 years old, I am a few chapters ahead so maybe there are a few lessons I can share.   Right now I’ll bet there are a multitude of emotions running through you - from sheer joy to trepidation, from anxiety to anticipation.  Don’t worry -- that’s normal. And it’s something you’ve faced before.  When you went from kindergarten to elementary school and then from junior high to high school to college… it’s all been a series of NEW BEGINNINGS.  Now, some of you have chosen to continue on with higher education, and others are jumping out into the “real world.”  But YOUR schooling isn’t over.  Treat the workplace as another school and learn all the lessons you can from it. Don’t be afraid to start from the bottom.  Be humble and stay humble.  No job is beneath you if you use it as a lesson.    I may have been very successful in my music career – but when I started a film career, I was just another actor looking for work.  My fame wasn’t a help......

Graduation Speech

...My fellow students, we only arrived here four short years ago, and now it's already time to leave. How did it all go so fast? It seems like only yesterday that we were awkward little freshmen fighting with the locks on our lockers, trying to figure out where our next class was, and looking generally clueless to all the upper classmen. Now we are the upperclassmen, the seniors who stand here ready to graduate and move forward in the world. Yet at this moment, we can't help looking back. How do we measure the time we've spent in high school? In the beginning, we measured it in class periods, counting down the day to eventual freedom. As the days and weeks passed, we measured it in semesters, and later in years as we moved from being those clueless freshmen, to becoming sophisticated sophomores who thought they had it all figured out. By the time we reached our junior year, we were confident that we were prepared to take over for the graduating seniors, and we couldn't wait to "rule the school." And now here we stand. Sadly our reign is over, and it's up to the next class to step into our shoes and take over. I know that as I look out at all of you, I will measure my time here in a much different way. I will measure it in all the friendships I've enjoyed these last four years. Some were casual and others were BFF’s, but I'll remember each one fondly, as I'm sure you all will, too. And when many of our high school memories begin to fade, that's how we'll ultimately measure......
